Emergency Response Action Plan
Emergency Response Action Plan PDF
Water damage arises from broken pipes, blocked drains, malfunctioning appliances, storms, fire damage, and other causes. The appropriate treatment depends on the nature of the damage. Some water carries contaminants and should be considered hazardous. Whatever the origin, the prospects for restoration depend largely on the speed with which your building and personal property can be dried. Even clean water can generate mildew and other bacterial growth if neglected.
Raw sewage and flood waters contain bacteria and other micro organisms which are extremely hazardous to human health. These can be transmitted by touching contaminated items or by tracking them into uncontaminated areas on shoes. Children and pets are especially vulnerable. Frequent hand washing is an important preventative measure. Absorbant materials such as carpeting and drywall may not be restorable after direct contact with sewage-contaminated or flood-contaminated water.

Storm Damage Repairs
Water restoration emergencies happen every day. Any water damage situation is stressful and irritating, regardless of the trigger event.

Restoration After Flooding
As homes and commercial properties sustain water damage following natural disasters, it is important to address the situation as soon as possible with proper water damage restoration. When flood cleanup is not attempted in a reasonable time frame, mold may set in and cause unpleasant and disturbing health symptoms. Each water damage removal and restoration project is unique with its own scenarios, but the universal idea behind successful flood repair jobs is that complete and thorough drying must be achieved before any rebuilding can be attempted.
